The WIZARD database is a repository of information on freshwater wells drilled into aquifer in Kansas. WIZARD consolidates information formerly maintained by several local, state, and federal agencies. Most of the data stored has been taken from the U.S. Geological Survey's GWSI (Ground Water Site Inventory) and with the exception of those wells included in the Kansas monitoring well network, none of this information has been verified. About two-thirds of the annual water-level data are now submitted by local GMDs and the Division of Water Resources, with the other third being updated by the KGS. WIZARD is owned and operated by the Kansas Geological Survey.
